Thanks for stopping by today Dena and Danet! Shall we get on with the interview???
Thanks to Julianne for letting me drop in on Author Wednesday. My new book, Mystic’s Touch just came out on the 13th and I’ve been a busy little bee!
New books are exciting. But when it means introducing characters you absolutely fell in love with, it’s even more special. In an effort to let you get to know my heroine, Danet, better I posed a few interview questions to her. First, to give you some background, here’s a glimpse into Mystic’s Touch:
When Prince Ceros returns home to take his place on the throne, he falls prey to a mysterious malady that leaves him unable to speak or move, though his thoughts and awareness remain intact. Danet, a talented healer, realizes the prince is alert inside his body. The two are able to share thoughts telepathically. Unfortunately her connection with Ceros may bring unwanted attention to her abilities and result in her banishment from the city.
Their unique bond grows as Danet races to find a remedy for the prince’s condition. Desire turns to love, which makes Danet fear for their future when he awakens. They seek out the villain attempting to take the throne and endeavor to find a way to stay together.
Inside Scoop: Ceros’ secret shifter status adds complication and intrigue to their budding romance.

Now, let’s hear from Danet:
What is your favorite food?
Our housekeeper Ryana makes the best sweet bread in the kingdom. If I’m feeling stressed or down about something, she always makes fresh batch for me. Ryana is too good to me!
Why are you considered to be a healer instead of a physician?
I was trained as a physician and even studied with one of my father’s closest friends who is considered one the kingdom’s top physicians. Unfortunately, it is virtually unheard of for a woman to complete the training and become a physician. It makes some of our older physicians and members of the Council more comfortable to think of me simply as a healer. I am lucky that I am able to work in my father’s clinic with autonomy. It allows me to treat my patients without having to ask for confirmation of my diagnosis from someone else just because they are male.
What did you think when you realized you could hear Prince Ceros’ thoughts?
At first I didn’t realize what I was hearing was only in my head. When I did, I was startled, scared and excited because I knew what it probably meant. But when I found out it was Ceros – the Prince – I was terrified. The only thing that kept me from running home and never returning was hearing his frustration at not being able to communicate with anyone else.
What other “gifts” do you have?
I used to get glimpses of the future, but I haven’t done that in a very long time. I can still manifest a shield to protect myself and maybe one or two others from danger. And I have an uncanny knack for healing people. It’s hard to say how much of that is due to my education and continued learning and how much of an inherent “gift.” There are probably more that I don’t know of yet. I have a lot to learn about my heritage.
What attracted you to Ceros?
He is a very good looking man. *grins* But I think it was his passion. And, no, I don’t just mean in bed. It’s how far he’s willing to go to protect his family and his kingdom.
We all lead very busy lives with multiple roles, and I'm no different. I'm a mother, employee, author, jewelry designer, daughter and sister. And not necessarily in that order! We share our home with a very loving and loyal Labrador-mix dog named Sadie and a spoiled grey tabby, Bijous. As the mother of two rowdy boys, I can often be found on the practice field or sidelines of some sport (football is huge in our house!).
But I love to hear from readers! Feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
